Regardless of the stage of your periodontal disease, with our advanced technology and skills, we will perform the necessary treatment required to stop it in its tracks.
What Is Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal disease is a chronic inflammatory disease that causes the gums to pull away or recede from your teeth. Food particles and bacteria trapped inside your mouth can produce inflammation and irritating toxins that attack the bones underneath your gums.
Advanced stage periodontal disease makes your teeth seem longer due to gum recession. As the disease progresses, it attacks the bone, causing teeth to fall out. In adults, periodontal disease is the most common cause of tooth loss.
Early signs of periodontal disease include redness, swelling, bleeding when brushing or flossing, and irritated gum tissues. If you are experiencing any of these signs of periodontal disease, schedule your appointment with AZ Cosmetic and Family Dentistry at Glendale.
Our certified team of experts will thoroughly assess your condition to develop a personalized treatment plan that caters to all your needs. We will do our best to prevent periodontal disease from progressing and causing further damage.
Periodontal Disease Treatment
Treatment for periodontal disease varies from person to person. We customize our treatment plan based on how much the disease has progressed and how much bone tissue has been affected.
At our facility in Glendale, we understand that all patients have unique needs and therefore ensure our procedures are personalized to cater to individual needs.
If patients are at an early stage of periodontal disease, treatment may only require cleaning and commitment to good oral hygiene with the addition of recommended antimicrobial products. Practicing good oral hygiene includes using fluoride-rich products, brushing, flossing, and regularly visiting the dentist’s office for cleaning.
A deep cleaning procedure known as root scaling and planning for advanced periodontal disease will be performed. Deep root scaling removes bacteria trapped in the gum line and surface of the roots to prevent inflammation from progressing. Loose or damaged teeth in advanced-stage periodontitis will be removed as well.
Our dentists in Glendale have years of experience practicing periodontal care and performing advanced procedures with laser therapy.
Our facility offers different levels of laser therapy to destroy bacteria and remove the damaged tissue without causing any pain or discomfort. Our laser periodontal treatments are minimally invasive with very less recovery time.
